  • Alan Turing Machine Research Paper

    computer scientists and historians alike have hailed Alan Turing as the “father of the modern computer.” This is no small claim if one considers the tremendous impact computers have on humanity. Innovations like the internet and email have massive effects on everyday life in the modern world, from every call made from a cell phone, to every pixel of data seen on a high-definition television screen, computation of one kind or another is involved in some way. There are countless worthy topics for study in the history of computer science, yet there is one that until recently, has been largely forgotten by historians and scientists alike, and that is the contributions of Alan Turing to the world of computer science. To claim Turing is…

  • Alan Turing Computing Machine And Intelligence Analysis

    In his essay, “Computing Machinery and Intelligence,” Alan Turing poses the question, “Can machines think?” (433). Turing takes the position that machines can, indeed, think depending on how one defines thought. Although he states that he “should begin with the definitions of the meaning of the terms ‘machine’ and ‘think,’” he does not directly provide the reader with his definition of thought (433). Instead, he spends a lengthy amount of time exploring a replacement question that manifests…

  • The Turing Test: Whether Machines Can Think?

    The Turing test tries to answer the question “whether machines can think?” It is also called as an imitation game. The Turing test tries to compare the intelligence of a machine with an intelligence of human as a reference. It was conducted in following steps: • A machine and a human are placed in distinct rooms apart from the second human being who will be acting as an interrogator. • Interrogator is allowed to ask different questions of any type to a machine and a human being in a written…

  • The Influence Of Mathematics In Movies

    The way that the filmmakers had to visually make mathematics present was by showing the struggle behind the character’s failures. The first hour of The Imitation Game demonstrates the growing frustration of the team trying to break the enigma code. They try their hardest in every possible way they can, but they do not succeed until Turing miraculously discovers that the machine must be programmed to a word or phrase that it would be able to recognize in most, if not all, Nazi messages. I think…

  • Theories Of Functionalism

    The two most commonly cited criticisms of the turing test are: The Chinese Room criticism and the Blockhead criticism. 2 The Chinese Room argument closely relates to the Turing test. Published by John Searle in 1932, the thought experience describes a situation where Searle is locked in a room and is then passed Chinese characters under the door. Searle does not understand any Chinese, but by manipulating symbols and numerals and matching them with the symbols and numerals he has in the room,…

  • Citizenship In The Film 'I, Robot'

    TITLE Machines proving to possess a conscious and body, thus becoming citizens. After proving eligibility, a machine may obtain citizenship, extension of universal rights, gaining freedom, and responsibilities, and consequences for choices, which will result in a machine society. Machines will need to possess both mental and physical presence to be eligible for universal rights. In the movie “I, Robot” Sonny would be a good an example of a candidate for full rights. I think that machines could…

  • Importance Of Morality In The Euthyphro Dilemma

    on the paper, and output back out of the room. This experiment would appear to pass a Turing Test conducted in Chinese as a native Chinese speaker outside the room would be deceived into thinking he was communicating with someone who genuinely understands Chinese inside the room. Thus, understanding the meaning behind the task is not automatically inferred by the machine and it is not necessary for it to complete the task. Searle’s argument does bring a valid criticism of the Turing Test in…

  • Sample Of Artificial Intelligence

    Though it has been argued that these robots do not possess ‘strong’ artificial intelligence, intelligence on par with that of a human, they do represent ‘weak’ artificial intelligence, or intelligence related to a specific problem or task [3]. In 1950 Alan Turing published his paper ‘Computing…

  • The Influence Of Artificial Intelligence

    Artificial intelligence is “the capability of a machine to imitate intelligent human behavior” (“Artificial Intelligence” par. 2). Artificial intelligence is being used in the modern world for several jobs and uses that humans rely on or come across almost every single day. For example, artificial intelligence is used to write simple reports about sports and other factual topics. In addition, it is also used in technological security in financial industries like credit card fraud security and…
